Cubicle Door Candle HolderSeptember 9th, 2008 in projects
When asked what her mother does for a living, my daughter
Elizabeth no longer pauses to come up with a clever, thoughtful response. Instead, she cuts straight to the point: "Mom
makes stuff out of junk. When she can't
come up with any other ideas, she makes it into a candle holder." How telling.
Truth be told, I haven't made the reliable junk candle holder since the new site was launched. Here's a fresh take on a repurpose classic!
White peg board
Old door from office cubicle cabinet
Found key lock
Small screw to fit your key lock
Vintage drawer pull
Metallic silver spray paint
Hanging votive holder
Step 1: Unscrew and remove top of door.
Step 2: Measure inside of door for size of pegboard.
Step 3: Cut pegboard to size with reciprocal saw.
Step 4: Insert pegboard into door.
Step 5: Screw top back on tightly leaving no gaps.
Step 6: Position key lock where desired and from the back screw into place.
Step 7: Reinforce key lock with glue if necessary.
Step 8: Measure and screw two picture hangers to back top corners.
Step 9: Sand and spray paint vintage drawer pull.
Step 10: Attach drawer pull where desired with glue.
Step 11: Hang the candle. How enlightening!
After you make it, show it off to other members in the Member Junk area.
